I know Jackson Crawford does, though most of his videos are filled mostly with English explanations, though luckily he did 2 Old Norse readings I'm aware of here and here. Its nice to have some examples, but it would be cool to have more extensive recordings, or at least to collect all the available samples together.

I've come across this page which is aimed at Norwegian high school students. There is a short film (30 minutes) where all the actors speak Old Norse, and there is a shorter video presenting a text and how to pronounce it. It is not much but better than nothing and as far as I can tell it is not modern Icelandic pronunciation.

N.B. the page is in Norwegian and so are the subtitles of the short film.
